German side Cologne sports chief Jörg Schmadtke has confirmed talks with Chelsea over Tomas Kalas, according to the TMW website.
The highly-rated 20-year-old replaced the injured John Terry to make his Premier League debut against Liverpool in the 2-0 win at Anfield last season.
His performance that game has pretty much meant Jose Mourinho will give him more of a chance in the first team.
However, he is not ready just yet and he is expected to go out on-loan.
“Nothing has been signed, but I’m assuming he’s coming,” revealed Schmadtke.
